The only thing better than solving mysteries is solving mysteries in Colonial dress, and this book delivers on both counts. Meg and her friend Kerry agree to help with a toy show in Williamsburg (which is awesome enough; the description of the dollhouse alone made me want to build one), but are drawn in to help Miss Mariah Collins to find her missing clothespin dolls while unraveling the identities and intentions of mysterious strangers along the way. This book was extremely entertaining, had li ...more
As a kid I had an entire shelf of books dedicated to books I was given because one of the characters was named Meg, which is also how I discovered my favorite book growing up A Wrinkle in Time. Two of the Meg Mysteries by Holly Beth Walker were among the books on this shelf.

One of my favorite books from my childhood. When everybody else was reading Nancy Drew, I was the Meg Mysteries. Sadly, there were only six written.
Loved Meg! Especially since her name was part of my name.
I remember reading this as a child, so jumped at the chance to buy a mint copy at a flea market. An easy read, I got through it in a few hours. A great piece of nostalgia, when mysteries were solved by plucky youngsters' quick wittedness - no CSI in sight. Great fun - enough suspense to be satisfying without being scary - I'd recommend to an adult wanting a quick walk down memory lane, or for a young reader aged 8-12 who likes mystery stories.
I really enjoyed this book as a girl- a dollhouse with a hidden compartment, a house with sort of secret doors, old dolls that are lost... It had everything I wanted. LOL
Haven't read this since I was 9, but loved it back then. Was one of my favorite books for years-much better than nancy drew.

Re-read this much-loved children's book in a single sitting. I guess it doesn't hurt that the "sidekick" is named Kerry!
